Jon Rahm might consider buying some property alongside the majestic canyons and Pacific Ocean at Torrey Pines. The place has proven to be pure heaven for him.
Rahm went on a scintillating late rampage to seize the U.S. Open, capturing his first career major championship.
The win came just three weeks removed from Rahm being forced to withdraw from the Memorial after he’d built a six-shot lead through 54 holes because he tested positive for COVID-19. That cost him a chance to repeat as champion as well as $1.7 million.
“I’m a big believer in karma,’’ an emotional Rahm said. “After what happened a couple weeks ago, I stayed really positive knowing big things were going to happen. I didn’t know what, but we were coming to a place where I got my first win and it’s a very special place for me and my family. I just felt like the stars were aligning.’’
